In 2019, the Sudanese people overthrew the regime of the Omar El-Bashir, a military dictator who ruled the country for 30 years. Join us as two leading experts, Crystal Murphy and Magdi El-Gizouli, discuss the role of Sudanese youth and resistance committees in creating a revolutionary Sudanese politics in the face of ongoing military repression and economic hardships.

We will discuss what the international community can do to help the Sudanese people establish a democracy in Sudan, and why we have not done nearly enough to protect the Sudanese transition. Speakers will also talk about what it means to carry out a revolutionary practice of democracy into the present.
